How to fly to the moon?

As you know, all manned flights to the moon were carried out only on the spacecraft, at the time occupying about 3 days 3 hours and 49 minutes. For great distances in the 380, 000 kilometers this is a perfectly acceptable time, but it is worth noting that scientists from NASA have already made more than . For example, running at a speed of 58,000 km/h the satellite flew to the moon in just 8 hours and 35 minutes, and thanks to the development of powerful engines and the various modifications to the spacecraft, over time, the moon began to take even less time. But what if you suddenly want to realize space travel is not on a space ship, bike or hot air balloon? How much time it will take you to overcome a few hundred thousand miles that separates our planet from its natural satellite?

## the moon

Currently, astronauts have already made many expeditions both to the moon and its orbit. On average, from our planet to the satellite takes 3 to 5 days from the time of launch of flights in an average of 380 thousand kilometers and ending with the landing depending on the specific goals of the expedition. For the duration of the flight is affected by many factors, both foreseen and unforeseen. Important value has himself a spaceship and its high-speed capabilities coupled with economy. For example, in 2003 was launched the expedition to the moon, which in total took one year, one month and two days, being considered up to the present time the most economical.

According to an article published on the website , modern experts have calculated the approximate amount of time that would be spent on a trip to the moon on different types of transport, if it were possible. So, if you imagine that the moon can be reached by car, how long would have gone on a journey?

Astronomers believe that in order to go beyond Land vehicle at a speed of 60 km/h it will take about an hour. Outside of our planet passenger transport would require much more time, since the trip to the moon is about 10 times more of the circumference of our planet. In other words, the driver of the car would have to travel around the world 10 times in a row in order to drive the equivalent distance from Earth to its natural satellite.

## How long is the trip to the moon on a bike?

Obviously, if you are going on a trip to the moon on a Bicycle, it will take much more time than a Shuttle or car. If we assume that the average speed of the average cyclist reaches about 16 km/h, the Earth, the traveler will need about six hours of nonstop pedaling, which, respectively, require six times more time compared to a car.

If you have to own a balloon, and you for some reason really want to go to the moon, you should know that in the world there is already a prototype of the balloon , because of what your journey on Earth may not be so unique a phenomenon from the point of view of science.

For flight in the stratosphere it develops new kinds of hot-air balloons

If you imagine that the balloon can take you to safe and sound all the way to the moon, then fly you will have almost the same time as it would take the average cyclist on a similar journey. In addition to speed 8 km/h, to realize ambitious ideas, you can prevent weather conditions in the form of strong winds and the lesser amount of oxygen as the distance from the surface of our planet.
